Can those be for November round invites? Any way, does anybody know the interview period/interview invite start date for November round?

Why do you think you are the last one? thats kinda mean


Sorry. I meant that I was wrong. My email did say that EA interviews were supposed to be completed by 17th Nov. But I can see Skype slots for 20th, 21st and 27th. So, there’s a chance that more invites are going to be issued.

Hey Souvik, So you are interviewing after November 17? Thats strange. BTW, did you hear back from Kellogg?

Best of luck to everyone who just submitted or is waiting until the January round! I would highly recommend everyone to travel to campus if possible. I loved my time there and the whole experience at Tuck felt so wildly different than any of the other schools.

I can see how Hanover could feel claustrophobic for some after a while, so visit for an interview if you're lucky, or admit weekend if you're even luckier!

Here's the transcript of our recent live chat with Tuck adcom. Thank you all for participating in the chat and asking insightful questions.

"When looking at your work experience, we want to know the responsibilities you’ve had, the value you added to the organization, and how you grew. Something like taking initiative or having the opportunity to lead is much more important to us than the company’s "brand." You’ve likely had a lot of unique, interesting, and valuable experiences at a start-up that you might not have had working for a large, more established company. Tell us about them!" - Stephanie Butler, Assistant Director, Tuck Admissions.

Can we realistically hope for more interview invites for R1 (others) / EA (Tuck) or are our chances slim at this point?

Yep. I am sure it’s an email that goes out to everyone. I doubt they would pick and choose who they wanted to thank for coming to interview, especially since some people interview before submitting an app. And also, I can’t imagine a busy Adcom taking the time to cull the list of who gets thanked and who doesn’t.


Sent from my iPhone using GMAT Club Forum mobile app

Yes you're absolutely right. I interviewed before submitting my application and I got that email too. It's a generic email and no inference should be drawn from it.

I applied in EA and interviewed on campus but did not receive such "thank you for interviewing" email, anyone else did not receive this email?

There is no hope bros..even after scoring 750 and with work experience of more than 4 years at a national oil company..application is still waiting to receive any descent invite from Tuck, UCLA and Ross. I don’t think there is any hope now.

Mr. Jindal
If I were in your shoes, I'd not loose hope. Of course, I am in competition with you for that one coveted seat in the class of 2020 at Tuck. But let me share my experience.
I was WL last year from Nov round, all the way till June, when I heard that final decision, which wasn't in my favour. I applied again this year. A lot happened in between - a news that I am going to be a father, an accident and volatile job market (you'd probably understand, as I am in the same market, but in the upstream business).
The interview was worse (at the least in my opinion) than last year and my reference hasn't yet reached Tuck yet!! The only thing is, I personally went to visit Tuck, for both the applications.
You see, what kind of message I am sending out here!!
Add to that the revised format of GMAT, where one can choose the order of sections. When I wrote GMAT last, I didn't have that option. Does it increase score, probably not, but may for some. And you know what, competition for me (and others like me) has just increased because of that.
Things happen and it is life. But, I'd not lose hope. Yes, it is hard. Many would say it is a reach school for me and I'd agree with them - only if it (admission) was a game of numbers and statistics. But it is not. Your commitment, essays, interviews, references, etc. do matter. And yes, I am learning that many have started to game even those parts - if not with cent percent success, but any percent increase in probability (of being admitted) is a step closer to the school.
So, again. All I'd say is: Don't lose hope.

Thanks.
Well, I know the pain of rejection, (and worse) being waitlisted. But I firmly believe that it is not an end in itself. I just wish I could convey this to all those hopefuls and those getting anxiety attacks - just joking about attacks.
I hope sanity prevails. :)
